Here's a group I shot this morning using the same bullet for 43 Dutch Beaumont you have - the 345 grain Lee sized .457. I used 27.0 grains of Accurate Arms 5744 and standard large rifle primers.

I shot this at 50 meters only using my shooting bag for a rest. I forgot the chronograph, but I estimate velocity in the 1300 feet per second range.

I fired two other groups which were very much like this one so I believe I will try for 100 meter groups next time.

The two shots in one hole do not show up as well on the target as they did on the meat-wrapping paper I use to record groups that are off the target. they are there, though!

Other than that, I tried for groups from my new Swiss Vetterli but have nothing worth reporting that way. About all I did was burn up my 777 loads.

More on this later! :bigrin: SW

Looking good Hogger.
I think you found the right load.
I will use the same bullet, but behind it 45gn of WANO PP (German BP) and a Federal large pistol primer to ignite it.
I hope I can produce groups like that next time I take my Beaumont to the range.
Keep me posted.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

Airdale sent me a load using 5744. I think these bullets were too small, but I have a dedicated 41 Swiss mold kaintuck gave me and will size them .432.

Got my brass all cleaned and re-annealed - got my 43 Beaumont brass ready to go again... now if I only had a little more time to hit the range! SW

Got some reformed brass that someone sent me made from 8X50r lebel brass. But I still have to do the CF conversion before I can try it.
On the other hand..........I need o get my Beaumont brass loaded! See if I can compete with your groups 8-)
